#waterwednesday here's a @GoPro tutorial on water conservation: use a soapy bowl to handwash dishes then rinse all at once! This took 6 gallons v. 15 gallons needed for dishwashers. If using a dishwasher, wait until it's FULL and skip on pre-rinsing!

#waterwednesday Best way to deal with our water supply issues? Decrease the demand and conserve! I let the dishes pile up this week to show how I only used 6 gallons of water handwashing v. 15 gallons in regular dishwashers. If you use a dishwasher, wait until it's FULL and don't pre-rinse every plate/bowl/spoon- that adds more water! For the handwashers out there, fill a bowl or pot with soapy water to scrub instead of leaving the water running. Once you have a pile of soapy dishes, rinse them all at once! My faucet releases 1.5 gpm (gallons per minute). What about yours?

placesandpizza : I have .5 GPM aerators on my faucets! It's by Niagara conservation. I have one of their shower heads too with three settings .5, 1, and 1.5.
wildwoolley : @placesandpizza dang that's great! Looks like I need an upgrade! I've been considering faucet/shower aerators for all birthday presents this year. You just sealed the deal
hkayyyyy : Haha @wildwoolley the truth comes out
placesandpizza : Its the trimax shower head. Be careful, people love their showers with lots of water! It's normal to me now but it was weird stitching to that type of sprayer. Some people really want to hang on to their luxury.
daughteroftexas : Significant other that dries dishes for you...."priceless!"
wildwoolley : Of course they do! That's the hardest part of educating on conservation. We're at 2gpm in the shower now @placesandpizza
wildwoolley : @daughteroftexas so true!!!
livingwaterwise : This is great !

#waterwednesday When the #wildwildwest was growing, water was managed federally, by the Bureau of Reclamation. Over time, water management was shifted to local governments. It is now so localized that no single entity is monitoring water projects or water use. Currently, there is a portion of the Trinity Aquifer that has NO governing authority. Nobody manages it. A large company, Electro Purification, plans to pump 5 million gallons a day from the aquifer and sell to growing #Austin suburbs (#Kyle, #Buda). They will not have to report how much they are pumping. To anyone. This could (will) affect the water table and surrounding areas' groundwater levels. Aquifer levels are projected to drop 50 feet in one year. Call your Texas state representative and demand a bill that manages our groundwater supply. This is really serious.

#waterwednesday Lets talk inflows and drought! Water flowing into lakes or rivers is called inflow. In the Texas Colorado River basin, inflows over the past 5 years have been the lowest recorded in HISTORY! Rain in our basin, and across the country, must fall in the right spots in order to flow into the water supply reservoirs. Most rain in the Austin area has fallen east of our reservoirs' watersheds and contributed very little. Lake Travis and Lake Buchanan are only 34% full. This picture is of students at LCRA's Redbud Center learning about the water cycle.

inkoluv : To think @king_of_the_gulf is floating on a bayou in South East Texas 30 minutes away from any boat ramp. He calls me and says "I'm in heaven".
king_of_the_gulf : Boat is full of cat fish and taking on rain water this is what I call heaven...
king_of_the_gulf : Come on wit it Mother Nature is calling my name deep in the bayou and marshes of south east Texas

#waterwednesday Native plants, like this gnarly #sage, are the best types of outdoor #waterconservation! 60% of residential water use goes to outdoor landscape! Plant native species = reduce water use. This picture is from Rio Grande Gorge near Taos, New Mexico. Summer 2014.

#waterwednesday Its been a year since Carlos and Charlies closed it's door due to the #txdrought. Look at the Lake Travis water level difference- no boats could reach the dock! Currently, Austin area water supply reservoirs are only 34% full! The time to conserve is NOW. Thanks @globalinheritance for the contrast idea 😊

speakingoftaylor : 😩😩😩 used to be one of my favorite places... I had a friend from England visit me in 2008 and she LOVED it there too. She emailed me saying she would be coming to visit again and couldn't wait to stop at Carlos n Charlie's and it was horrible having to tell her it was all gone. We have GOT to fix this. You're awesome for being so passionate about this.. I think everyone should be too!
freebird_420 : Wow 😔
wildwoolley : @speakingoftaylor @freebird_420 I know so terrible! I hope we see it full again someday...

I found it. Seiders Springs! It's the only ebb and flow spring in #texas. The current was so strong in the 1830-1880s it was suggested as a water supply for #austin! Glad we decided on the #ColoradoRiver instead. #txdrought

Happy Water Wednesday! During Smart Irrigation Month, we should all be working to reduce our water use. While there has been great advancement in the field of irrigation equipment, keep in mind that your water conservation plans should focus on more than just your irrigation system. Combining efficient equipment with smart practices and products, like #Hydretain, can increase the amount of water you save.
